Registered trademark symbol needed?

Should the registered trademark symbol be included? i.e. Bogleheads forum or Bogleheads® forum? --Peculiar Investor 19:09, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

Resolved: Based on LadyGeek's edit, the answer is Bogleheads® forum

Parameter names

To be consistent with phpBB, and therefore easier to use, I'm thinking it would make sense to replace the parameters topic_id with t and post_id with p? The syntax would become {{forum post|t= |p= |title= }}? --Peculiar Investor 03:21, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

The more I ponder it, the stronger I feel this change is the correct approach, but I'll wait for any other views before making a change. --Peculiar Investor 19:55, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
The suggested change would not be helpful to editors. Nothing is changed in the code. "t=" and "p=" are implementations which require understanding of the URL parameters, while "topic_id" and "post_id" are clear. --LadyGeek 01:35, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
Can't disagree, just thought having the same parameters as phpBB would make it easier to cut and paste into the template. Plus it takes less typing, so less error prone. --Peculiar Investor 01:55, 8 December 2015 (UTC)
